THE CRITICS' CHOICE AWARDS WILL GO ON -- NO PICKET SIGNS IN SIGHT!!! 


Alright y'all, get your TIVO ready, the Critics' Choice Awards will go as planned!

As you may know, I'm a proud member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association, the mother hen of the Critics' Choice Awards.

So take this down:

VH1, 9/8 CENTRAL, TONIGHT!!!


The awards show will be broadcast live from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, hosted by D.L. Hughley.

The outdoor adventure film "Into the Wild," written and directed by Sean Penn, came into the contest with a leading seven nominations.

The teen pregnancy tale "Juno" followed with six, while "Atonement,""Michael Clayton,""No Country for Old Men,""Sweeney Todd" and "Hairspray" had five nominations each.

Awards were to be presented in 18 categories, including best young actor and actress, acting ensemble, song, composer, comedy and family film.

The Broadcast Film Critics Association, which represents 199 TV, radio and online critics from the United States and Canada, founded the Critics' Choice Awards in 1995.

For Oscar junkies, the Critics' Choice Awards is a strong barometer for the Academy Awards, so better watch it tonight!!!
